Strokes fans cast ye eyes over this direction:



Albert Hammond, Jr. will release a solo album entitled "Yours To Keep" exclusively in the U.K. through Rough Trade Records on Monday, October 9th.

"Yours To Keep" was recorded at New York's Electric Ladyland Studios, LoHo Studios, and Cabin In The City with Hammond, Jr. as guitarist and vocalist together with Josh Lattanzi on bass and Matt Romano on drums.

That basic trio has been augmented on various tracks by Julian Casablancas, Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne), Ben Kweller, Sean Lennon, Chris Feinstein, Mikki James, Sammy James Jr. (The Mooney Suzuki) and Ryan Gentles.

The album was produced by Greg Lattimer who first came to attention as vocalist with New York's Thin Lizard Dawn in the late-nineties. The album comes in addition to Albert's role in The Strokes - he is not leaving the band.

That's cool. Exclusively in the U.K? What the fuck, and why?

The fangirls are probably so fucking disappointed, seeing as he's not one of the hot Strokes. :milton:

Oh you saved yourself, I was about to quote the last line, and make you look foolish.

Aaaand there's still waffles?! Sweet!

I can't wait for this! Can the rest of DPT and babyshambles and Yeti be backstage as well? I think that might be fun.

No, I'm not going to the show. Your collarbone is that bone that pops out right below your neck. It goes across from one shoulder to the other, with a dip in the middle. If you take a deep breath it sticks way out, and on aneroxic people it looks really creepy.
